and terrorism. this is a statement. i'll read it to you, congressman. president obama is advocating his responsibility as commander in chief and undermining the authority of future presidents. the president does not need congress to authorize a strike on syria. if assad's use of chemical weapons against civilians deserves a military response, and i believe it does, and if the president is seeking congressional approval, then he should call congress back into special session at the earliest date. the president doesn't need 535 members of congress to enforce his own red line. you totally disagree with peter king. tell our viewers quickly, because we're out of time, congressman rangel, why he's wrong and you're right. >> peter king i thought was on the right track when he said the president should call back the congress. but this whole idea that he doesn't need 535 -- at least i hope he's saying we need the majority. to an extent of what his belief is, it's 135th of the united states congress. so i respect him or anybody else who believes the president is authorized to attack another count

few days really caused the concern. cnn agreed to a request from an obama administration official not to go in to details about the message all because of its sensitivity. we know that this message was a critical factor leading to the shut-down and not the only factor. several u.s. officials said they have seen an increase of threats of yemen for weeks. there have been some major prison breaks in the region that was affected, leaving al qaeda members who were behind bars unaccounted for. regardless, this was an unprecedented move. we saw something we don't always see in washington -- agreement between democrats and republicans saying they think the administration did the right thing shutting down the 2 2 embassies and consulates. president obama is celebrating his birthday at camp david and now back in washington. the white house said he is briefed about the threat and the national security team met to discuss it. fredericka? >> emily, it is monday in some places where these embassies have been closed, so what do we know about what's happening next? will they remain closed or open
obama to defend his red line on chemical weapons which rebels claim killed more than a thousands people in syria. >> we cannot sit still. >> reporter: syrian forces shelled so much it corrupted any evidence the u.n. might find this week. a u.s. official tells cnn behind the scenes multiple international sources have collected evidence from that site. the official says the sources took tissue samples and other evidence shortly after the attack. it was being analyzed in secure locations. that's why the white house tone changed so quickly from friday's get the inspectors in to sunday's it's too late to be credible. it's why an administration official sounded so confident in saying there's little doubt at this point that a chemical weapon was used by the syrian regime against civilians. the president's newly updated options include cruise missiles launched from one of four navy destroyers or jets firing from outside syrian air space. >> we're prepared to exercise whatever option, if he decides to employ one of those options. >> chris lawrence joins us from the pentagon. tell us some of the

. is it fair to say that president obama is not going to recall congress to seek some type of similar measure before proceeding? >> first of all, i don't want to engage in speculation about a course of action that's not been decided upon. when the president has an announcement to make, he'll make it. as this process is undertaken, we're consulting directly with house and senate leaders in congress. we're consulting with the leadership of relevant committees and other members who have a keen interest in this manner. i think you've seen that documents by some members who have spoken to it. that process will continue. we think it's important that the consultation process take place in a matter like this at such gravity. we're also as we have made clear engaging with our international partners as a substantial list of communications that the secretary of state has had and the president has had consultations with canadian prime minister harper today and in recent days with british prime minister. i would anticipate the president will continue to make calls to his counterparts throughout the week.
. let me emphasize president obama, we in the united states, we believe in the united nations. we have great respect for the brave inspectors who endure regime, gunfire and strouxs to their investigation. as the secretary general has said again and again, the u.n. investigation will not affirm who used these chemical weapons. that's not the mandate for the u.n. investigation. they will only affirm whether such weapons were used. by the definition of their own mandate, the u.n. can't tell us anything we haven't shared with you this afternoon or that we don't already flknow. because of the guaranteed russian obstructionism, the u.n. cannot galvanize the world to act as it should. let me be clear. we'll continue talking to the congress, talking to our allies and most importantly talking to the american people. president obama will ensure that the united states of america makes our own decisions on our own time lines based on our own values and our interests. we know that after a decade of conflict the american people are tired of war. believe me, i am too. fatigue does not absolve us of o
